The Creative Process Expired

Judged by Format – a website builder designed for photographers and artists of all kinds to showcase their work online.


The question of creativity–where it comes from and how it happens–is fascinating. In this photo challenge, we're looking for a glimpse into any of the phases of your creative process–whether it's coming up with the idea or putting the finishing touches on the project. The photos submitted can depict the creative process from any visual medium (photography, design, painting, sculpture, fashion, illustration).

Some ideas on the types of shots to take:

  • Caught in the act: photos that show the creator at work
  • Tools of the trade: photos that depict the creator's workspace or gear
  • Hands: The hands are often a creator's most valued asset. Show how the hands interact with the materials.
  • Miscellaneous: Any other images that capture the creative and technical process behind your chosen art. 

Check out this Collection for example photos.
